Parent Handbook

The Primary Parent Handbook aims to offer an insight into our school – a glimpse of our values, curriculum and policies. This Handbook covers important information crucial to the parent and school partnership necessary to ensure student’s well being and successful academic development during their time at HeadStart. As such, we expect parents to read and be familiar with the content of this document.
